LucidSound® Announces the LS25 eSports Gaming Headset for PC, Console, Mobile Platforms
Crystal-Clear Voice Chat and Exceptional Audio Quality Prove Ideal for Tournament and Competitive Gaming
I have had the distinct pleasure of using the LUCIDSOUND WIRELESS LS30 Universal Gaming Headset for the past few weeks. I am currently using them with my PC and up until a short while ago I had them attached by a cable from the phones to the computer because the box they came in and the multi-lingual 4-page instruction leaflet do not mention they are PC compatible, but they obviously are; even better I have recently discovered that they are wireless compatible with the PC simply by plugging the USB Base unit into a USB slot on the PC and holding the Button down for a few seconds on the headset. According to the accompanying leaflet the LS30 headset is designed to be used with the PS3, PS4, XBox ONE and XBox 360, but you can now add the PC to that list making them truly universal. The leaflet has a very brief paragraph for setting the headphones up with each of the aforementioned consoles.
The LS30 is a very comfortable set of phones with a padded head band for comfort and to augment the heavily padded cans themselves. They are so light and comfortable it wouldn't be very long before you forget you had them on if it wasn't for the exceptional quality of the sound entering your ears. It's like having a private concert in your head when you listen to recorded music and being in a surround-sound cinema when you watch a movie. The Bass and Treble effects can be modified by the EQ button on the phones and each separate can has a central button that controls the sound.
The LS30 comes in a strong and stable (I just had to say that) solid black box with an assortment of cables and a USB Base Station, everything you need for connecting to the consoles, along with illustrated diagrams in the instruction leaflet. The instructions are in German, French, Italian and Spanish as well as English but they open into an unwieldy large sheet which is awkward to use unless you do as I did and cut the paper into separate languages as four-page single-folded sections.
The LS30 comes with an easily attachable/detachable microphone for Skype or Messenger chats or for ingame speech with your world-wide comrades (as per in an MMO for example). This Mic' is a 6 inch thin wire cable with a jack on one end and a mini-mic head on the other, yet despite its flimsy appearance it actually works extremely well. It plugs into the headset via a specifically shaped slot for stability.
The LS30 headset is good looking, not that I'm too worried what either I, myself, or the headphones look like as long as they are comfortable and the sound quality is good - the LS30 sound quality is far above just good - but they are also a little on the chunky side when compared to the "Dr Dre Beats" and similarly styled headphone sets, but my assumption is that the slight extra width on the cans is what makes these headphones so satisfyingly protective and snug.
At around £119.00 the LS30 compares more than favourably with other headsets of similar price that I have used. £119.00 may sound a lot but on today's market they are very reasonably priced.
